  • Q: Does this machine have a separate tank for clean water rinse or does the cleaner go in the same tank?  (5 Answers)

    By Karla 

    • Best answerThere are separate receptacles for clean water and cleaning solution on the top tank. The tank includes a knob on the front that toggles between "Rinse" and "Wash". "Wash" allows the water to mix with the cleaning solution; "Rinse" stops the mixing and allows only water to be sprayed.

    • Best answerThe Power Scrub Elite warms up the cleaning solution and the rinse water and does not create any steam. While it is effective and has two cleaning options (one for normal cleaning and one for deep cleaning) many areas that I have used it on have required two to three cleanings. I've tried the pet and the professional cleaning fluids and found that the pet solution does a better job with set in dirt and a lot better job with odors. The machine is effective in getting out everyday dirt but has a little tougher time on the ground in stuff. You also need to be careful about walking on the area cleaned while it is still wet. The cleaning solution will do a great job pulling the dirt out of your socks or off your bare feet and you will end up with soiled carpets.

  • Q: It works with water - wet cleaning and without water - as simply vacuuming? Right? Or is only wet cleaning?  (5 Answers)

    By Anastasiya 

    • Best answerIt is a carpet shampooer. It works by spraying water and cleaner on the floor and scrubbing it. Then you suck up the water/cleaning/dirt mixture. It does not operate as a standard vacuum cleaner. I own the Hoover carpet cleaner to wet scrub my carpet and a Dyson for vacuuming the carpets.
